Soil-cement is a densely compacted mixture of portland cement, soil/aggregate, and water. Used primarily as a base material for pavements, soil-cement is also being used for slope protection, low-permeable liners, foundation stabilization, and other applications. This report contains information on applications, material properties, mix proportioning, construction, quality-control inspection, and testing procedures for soil-cement. The intent of this report is to provide basic information on soil-cement technology with emphasis on current practice regarding mixture proportioning, properties, testing, and construction.
